A long drone song that I wrote which was inspired by some experimental Japanese music I listened to. I basically read a story that I wrote about Shippo and Kirara which was inspired by a comic written by KitsuneYoukai (or more specifically, me saying "You know, I don't want to cram darkness into everything. I like light-hearted moments just as much as the next guy, but I think that there should be something dark in this comic. Perhaps at the end it could be revealed that Kirara was actually having sex with a dead Shippo.) as well as Steven Universe, which is a show that I appreciate, but which I have a hard time watching. It's a good show, but I just can't watch an entire episode for some reason. Personally, I think it might be the voice acting. I've been binge-watching some cartoons where the voice acting feels a lot more natural, and I've been watching cartoons where the voice acting is partially ad-libbed (Rick and Morty, ATHF, Space Ghost: Coast To Coast) so when I see Steven Universe episodes like Too Many Birthdays with awkwardly worded jokes, slightly weird (yet not weird enough to be seen as an artistic choice) audio mixing (mostly in the equalization or mics used. It just sounds weird for some reason) and the tendency to focus on the visual element a little too much over the narrative (It has the 'too many small details in the background intending to be noticed' problem that many cartoons have these days) and the fact that sometimes it seems like it focuses too much on women (It sounds sexist, but it gets weird at times. Like how Connie is a young dark-skinned woman as a callback to those characters inserted into movies by executives who hear people complain about a lack of diversity and tell the films creators to shoehorn in more diverse characters. Then the creators take the route of least resistance by making a single character check all of the criteria for diversity they were given. Or the genderless main characters who all have obvious feminine traits that are often exaggerated. It reminds me of when Cardcaptor tried to introduce homosexual male scenes later on in the series with male characters, then claimed that the male characters were genderless. I don't know why it seems weird, but it seems weird to make a character genderless, then immediately place the character in romantic scenes, it seems at best unnecessary and at worst self-serving. You could leave the genderless thing out and the scenes wouldn't suffer, and may even be improved.)

Steven Universe feels like a show that started off as a forgettable show with a few good ideas. At some point, the writers must have realized that people weren't watching the show and decided to retool it a bit based on what people liked. I feel as though this is why the first season is pretty dull up until the final few episodes.

I really mean no ill-intent to Steven Universe, it is a great show. I don't know why I went off on a tangent there. Anyways, I hope you enjoy the song.
